MANAMA: Durrat Marina has achieved milestone progress on electrical support services aimed to boost the project’s secondary stages of development.

The marina-based real estate development, lying just north of Durrat Al Bahrain, has announced completion of works on the main substation, which was fully energised as of the start of this month.

The completed station will now ensure a permanent power supply to feed the developing marina, and ultimately the retail zone within the project.

Durrat Marina chief executive Waleed Saffy said, “The completion of the electrical substation is a critical step for bringing life to up and coming areas within Durrat Marina; it will feed the marina yacht club currently under operation and eventually the F&B and retail strip project upon its completion. We are committed to gradually delivering the tangible infrastructural and support services required to elevate Durrat Marina’s real estate presence.”

Comprising three interconnected islands, Durrat Marina is valued at approximately $1.5 billion and boasts open sea façades.

It combines luxurious residential, commercial, and leisure facilities, as well as a yacht club and dedicated marina services.

Phase one of this marina is already operational, serving a number of yachts and boat owners.

The first phase of the residential component, including a luxurious set of villas and apartments, has been developed and delivered, and the first commercial spaces are also ready on-site.
